No way. This is a gory, scary and dark view of Tudor life. Cate Blanchett is fab as Good Queen Bess and Geoffrey Rush is wonderful dahling as master spy Walsingham. Any dashing blades? Yes, by our Lady! Joseph Fiennes as Liz's lover Robert Dudley will set female hearts aflutter. This is not a history lesson but a brilliant trip through our far from glorious past. ——————————————————————————————————1/6—— 4 popcorns = A crowning glory !WATCH THE POPCORN FOR THE SCORE!
